Ramsey Lewis Electric with Philip Bailey (of Earth Wind & Fire)
After his classic acoustic albums in the 1960s, the change that was in the air during the 70s enticed RAMSEY LEWIS toward the electric realm. With this new sound, he collaborated with the enigmatic and iconic, Earth, Wind & Fire. SUN GODDESS, the result of this creative summit, is an album with sleek grooves and gorgeous melodies that continues to flow with the upliftng and positive vibes of that time. The album reached across the musical rainbow and, rightfully so, it became a huge cross-over hit; charting #1 on the Billboard Black Albums chart as well as the Jazz album chart and it charted #12 in the Pop chart. The songs “Hot Dawgit” and “Sun Goddess” charted in the Black Singles, the Pop Singles, and the Disco singles charts. SUN GODDESS has since been certified gold.
